The #ykastrong group — composed of 10 Kamloops business community leaders working together to addressing COVID-19 and its effects on business in Kamloops — has launched a community campaign called Support Kamloops.
The Support Kamloops campaign is designed to help stimulate the local economy by encouraging local residents to support Kamloops businesses. The campaign will explain how residents can participate in person or online and why it is important that dollars remain in Kamloops.
The campaign will drive residents online to www.ykastrong.com/support-kamloops for more information on how to engage with businesses. The site will share stories of businesses making a difference and provide links to businesses that are open throughout the city.
Residents are encouraged to share, over social media channels, by tagging @yka_strong on Instagram and using #ykastrong to join the conversation. Businesses and residents can download Support Kamloops messages and graphics to add to their own social media channels and on their websites. Posters can also be printed to display in windows and businesses.
The Support Kamloops campaign is spearheaded by the #ykastrong group: Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, City of Kamloops, Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association, North Shore Business Improvement Association, Venture Kamloops, Community Futures-Thompson Country, Kamloops Airport, Thompson Rivers University, Tk’emlups te Secwépemc and Tourism Kamloops.
